DEVELOPMENT

Providing insightful advice and planning support for development of diverse scale and complexity

Understanding the relationship between the motivation of proponents, the relevant planning provisions, the potential impacts on neighbouring properties and the opportunities/constraints inherent to each site is the foundation of URPS’ skill in development facilitation.

EXPERIENCE

URPS’ expertise in development facilitation ranges from large CBD and city-fringe apartment, hotel, retail and office projects through to commercial/civic developments such as schools, hospitals, health care centres, gymnasiums and cinema complexes.

Our experience includes major infrastructure including wind farms, electricity sub-stations, as well as a variety of agribusiness developments.

We also manage, and have capacity to issue, approvals for small-medium scale infill housing and a variety of land divisions. In short, no development is too big or too small.

RESULTS

Our strong working relationship with Local and State Government means we resolve any issues that arise quickly and efficiently to reduce approval timeframes.

We have a continuing relationship with many local councils in providing development assessment services from our offices and theirs.

URPS has registered private certifiers who are qualified to issue approvals for straight forward projects. We do this quickly and economically.

Our expertise is also regularly put to the test when we act as expert witnesses/professional representatives in courts and tribunals.
